Marc Bergevin and Rick Dudley know a winner when they see one. Thats why they are keeping 18 year old phenom, Alex Galchenyuk, in Montreal for the final 43 games of this abbreviated NHL season.

Subban-Watch officially ended this evening, with the Canadiens' defensive hold-out agreeing to a new contract.

Last week, before a game at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, I had a P.K. Subban related discussion with a longtime NHL executive who was at the game.

The Ottawa Senators are looking to continue their own momentum and it may be without Jason Spezza again.
Markov attempts to stay hot as the Canadiens go for a five-game winning streak by continuing their success against the Senators in this Northeast...
